According to a post from MetsBlog, Adam Rubin, has been told by a major-league source that relievers Sean Green and Bobby Parnell both are expected to open the season at Triple-A Buffalo.
We posted on MMO that this would most likely be the case last week, and this would also suggest that both Nelson Figueroa and Hisanori Takahashi will be on the opening day roster a week from Monday, when the Mets take on the Florida Marlins.
In the same post, Matt also writes that catcher Chris Coste has been placed on waivers.
You might remember that Coste, the former Phillie, was embarrassed to admit he signed with the Mets and made some silly remarks about it at the time.
This looks like it paves the way for Omir Santos to join Josh Thole in Buffalo.
At this point, I doubt the Mets would trade Santos as has been rumored by some…
